Shoes: We love them, but things can easily get out of hand when you’ve got dozens of pairs in your daily style rotation. For homeowners with lots of family members coming through the door, managing everyone’s shoes can feel like a challenge without the proper organizational tools. If that shoe pile in the mudroom is starting to haunt your every thought, then it’s definitely time to shake up your footwear storage situation.
When it comes to reorganizing the mudroom, opting for functional storage pieces are a great way to revamp the space while also sprucing it up. And these days, there are plenty of clever organizers available that are also aesthetically-pleasing; you can choose between rustic benches, woven baskets, modern cabinets and more to complement your mudroom without sacrificing your design vision.
It’s also important to make sure that you’re actually getting use out of the shoes that you’re keeping there. So, before you start loading up your shoes into your new storage bench, give each pair a glance over to ensure they’re seasonally appropriate, in good condition and, most importantly still spark joy. Home organization experts also recommend choosing shoe racks that allow you to see everything that’s inside so you don’t forget which pairs you’re storing and think you’ve misplaced them. To make each pair easily accessible for its designated wearer, you can also categorize styles by size and shoe type, or group them based on who they belong to.
